TOWN Smithtown Library dedicates playground to former trustee BY SARA-MEGAN WALSH SARA@TBRNEWSPAPERS.COM The work of a former Smithtown Library trustee will forever be remembered by the laughter of children playing. The Smithtown Library rededicated the playground outside its Kings Park branch Oct. 7 to the late Otis Thornhill. A former library trustee he also served as president of The Friends of the Smithtown Library for seven years. “He saw the value of the library and the need for us to continue to improve the buildings; he worked tirelessly toward that end,” Anthony Monteleone, representing The Friends of the Smithtown Library, said. “Otis was a true person of the community. It’s people like him that make Smithtown what it is today.” Thornhill and his family first moved to Commack in 2001. That same year the library playground was constructed as a joint effort between Kings Park Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Smithtown, according to chamber president Tony Tanzi, in an attempt to draw residents to spend more time in the downtown area and shops. “Come down here any day in the summer and you’ll see just that,” Tanzi said. “Moms and dads, and their kids, sitting downtown in Kings Park. That’s what it is all about.” In 2011, Thornhill was encouraged to run

Smithtown Library officials renamed the playground at the Kings Park branch after Otis Thornhill, inset, who died in December 2016. for a library trustee seat by Monteleone. He served until his death in December 2016. “As a library trustee, he offered his support and guidance to make sure the library served the reading and educational needs of this community,” Robert Lusak, library director, said. “If I could say it to him, I would

say I sorely, sorely miss the safe advice and guidance he provided to me as the director of The Smithtown Library. I will miss him very much.” Thornhill and his wife, Elaine, were familiar faces around the community as they often worked together to sell 50/50 raffle tickets to

raise funds for The Friends of the Smithtown Library during the summer concerts. In addition to his service to the library, Smithtown Councilman Ed Wehrheim (R) remembered Thornhill as a member of the Rotary Club of Smithtown Sunrise, which regularly meets at the Millennium Diner in Smithtown. Wehrheim said his fellow Rotarian focused his efforts on his community, improving education and veterans. Thornhill served in the U.S. military reserves. “I know that Otis is here looking down on us, looking down at his playground and his sign, and seeing those three things — education, veterans representation and a wonderful playground for the community,” Wehrheim said. Dawn Bent, owner of Signarama in Huntington Station, made a memorial sign declaring the playground as The Otis M. Thornhill Memorial Playground. The sign also bears the names of those individuals and business who gave donations to offset the sign’s cost. Eric Thornhill, Otis’ son, spoke on behalf of the family who said they were deeply touched by the tribute. “It was a comfort to [Otis] to have this connection to you as he was progressing through his life,” he said of his father. “It meant everything. It kept him strong to the very end, and that meant everything to him. We are so appreciative that you also thought something of him.”

and works from home as a business consultant, said another issue is that the property borders 25A, which is a historic corridor, and she is concerned its value as such will be jeopardized. She said the goal of the coalition is not to impede development but to demand a better master plan when it comes to properties such as Gyrodyne’s and the areas that surround it. “If we are going to develop it, and it’s certainly the right of that landowner to do that, let’s do it smartly,” she said. “Let’s do it with sustainability, and let’s do it with community input and let the other local officials from the Town of Brookhaven understand what’s going on and let them have a say in it, too. Because it’s going to affect the Town of Brookhaven, even though it’s in the township of Smithtown.” Romaine said he is also concerned with added traffic on Route 25A, pointing to the intersection of the state thoroughfare with Stony Brook Road where bends in the road cause limited sight issues. He said both are beyond their capacity. “In my view we have too much traffic and congestion now, and I want to make sure we don’t have any additional,” Romaine said. George Hoffman, co-chair of the Citizens Advisory Committee for Route 25A,

which conducted visioning meetings for residents in the Three Village area earlier this year, was also in attendance at the Oct. 4 meeting. He echoed Smith’s sentiments that there should have been more input from the community. He said he hopes Smith is successful in getting others involved in the coalition. “Maybe this is the issue that gets us all at the same table to start working in a uniformed way where we start to talk,” Hoffman said. “I really think we need that.” Romaine also sent a letter Sept. 20 to Smithtown Planning Board Chairman Conrad Chayes expressing his concerns and recommendations. He said while the county did not require a traffic study and only recommended one, he has faith that Smithtown will mandate it. When it comes to developments such as Gyrodyne, the supervisor said he is willing to work with the state, county and other towns. “To think that people can blindly put traffic out on Stony Brook Road without us putting up a fight, they are going to be sadly mistaken,” he said. “Brookhaven is definitely going to fight this.” Requests for comments from representatives of Gyrodyne were not returned by press time.

TOWN Residents approve $14.6M budget for Smithtown Library By Sara-Megan WalSh sara@tbrnewspapers.com

The Smithtown library’s approved 2018 budget made by Director robert lusak, below, has funds for building upgrades.

153849

The Smithtown Library patrons have given their seal of approval to the proposed 2018 plans of library officials while electing a new face to the board. Voters approved the $14.6 million 2018 Smithtown Library budget, by 798-241 votes, in the Oct. 10 election. Board trustees Louis Frontario and William Zimmerman were re-elected, but newcomer Brianna Baker-Stines edged out incumbent Rudy Zientarksi to take a seat. “The Smithtown Library thanks the residents of Smithtown who came out in support of their library and we look forward to continuing to serve the reading, informational, cultural and entertainment needs of the community,” Robert Lusak, library director, said. New trustee Baker-Stines, of Smithtown, works as an accounting assistant and has a master’s degree in business from Stony Brook University, according to her candidate profile on the library’s website. She previously worked as a reference clerk for the Hauppauge Public Library from 2012 to 2017. Prior to being elected, BakerStines stated her goals were to promote and maintain the brand of the library, increase residents’ usage of the library and improve funding through advocacy. “Libraries are currently changing in their meaning to communities,” she wrote in her candidate profile. “Instead of just being houses full of books, they are places to meet people and create things.” The library’s 2018 budget has funding set aside to increase the number of hours at its four branches, increase programming, and maintain and improve its current facilities, according to Lusak. More than $10.7 million of the library’s annual budget is set aside to cover employees’ salaries and benefits, with the approved budget containing a $150,000 increase over 2017. Additional staffing will be required next year if a new pilot program offering extended hours on Friday nights continues to be successful, according to Lusak. Since Labor Day, the Smithtown branch has stayed open an additional three hours on Fridays, pushing back its closing time from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. Based on patrons’ response, Lusak said he is leaning toward making a recommendation to library board trustees that all the other three branches — Commack, Kings Park and Nesconset — should stay open Friday nights starting in 2018. The approved budget includes an additional $68,000 funding increase, for a total of $344,000, toward equipment and capital outlays. The funds will go toward ensuring updated computers and technological equipment is available at the library, according to treasurer Joanne Grove. To better serve guests, Lusak said the 2018 budget contains funds for upgraded lighting and improved parking at the library’s four branches. The district also hopes to purchase a new generator as part of its emergency response plan. The 2018 budget will result in a $6.40 increase, or $313.47 per year, for a homeowner with an assessed property value of $5,500. Residents looking to calculate library taxes on their home should divide their assessed value by $1,000, take the resulting number and multiply it by 56.994. Further video instructions can be found on the library district’s website at www.smithlib.org.

It’s also exciting to see our peers really get into it.” Maria Zeitlin, a science research and college chemistry teacher at Smithtown High School East, divided students into four groups to test water oxygenation levels, document aquatic life forms, measure air temperature and wind speed, and compile an extensive physical description of wildlife and plants in the area. The collected data will be brought back to the classroom and compared against previous years. In this way, Zeitlin said the hands-on

study of Nissequogue River serves as a lesson in live data collection. Students must learn to repeat procedures multiple times and use various scientific instruments to support their findings. “Troubleshooting data collection is vital as a scientist that they can take into any area,” she said. “Data has to be reliable. So when someone says there’s climate change, someone can’t turn around and say it’s not true.” The Smithtown East teacher highlighted that while scientific research can be conducted anywhere, there’s a second life lesson she hopes that her students and all others will take away from their studies of the Nissequogue River. “This site is their backyard; they live here,” Zeitlin said. “Instead of just coming to the beach, from this point forward they will never see the beach the same again. It’s not just a recreational site, but its teeming with life and science.”

County Red-light camera investigation By Desirée Keegan Desiree@tbrnewspapers.com At the General Legislature meeting Oct. 3, the Suffolk County Legislature approved Introductory Resolution 1780, sponsored by Legislator Sarah Anker (D-Mount Sinai), directing the Department of Public Works to conduct a review of the Red Light Safety Program. The evaluation of the program will be done by an independent third-party consultant, who will identify

the intersections with red-light cameras that have had increases in accidents and determine the cause of these accidents, evaluate the efficacy of the camera program and will include recommendations about whether the cameras should be retained at these intersections. The evaluation of the program will include consideration of the benefits and drawbacks to public safety given the number, type and severity of the accidents and will include all accidents involving cars, pedestrians and bicyclists at red-light camera intersections.

The Suffolk County Legislature passed into local law that access to naloxone be mandated at all substance abuse and mental health providers. Unanimously passed Oct. 3, Introductory Resolution 1679, sponsored by Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker (D-Mount Siani), will make Suffolk County grants, contracts and funding to mental health and substance abuse service providers contingent on the availability of naloxone on premises at all times and having staff trained in the administration of naloxone on-site during business hours. Naloxone, known more widely by the brand name Narcan, is a medication that reverses an overdose. “This vital legislation will help save lives and provide a second chance to those struggling with addiction,” Anker said. “I will continue to support treatment options and rehabilitation assistance to those suffering from addiction, and I greatly appreciate the many agencies the county contracts with that will have naloxone on hand to provide this life-saving treatment if needed.” The new law will affect 38 mental health and substance abuse service providers in Suffolk County, including 18 New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services providers and 20 New York State Office of Mental Health providers. Some of these organizations include John T. Mather Memorial Hospital in Port Jefferson; Concern for Independent Living Inc. in Selden; IMPACT Counseling Services in Lake Grove; Employee Assistance Resource Services in Smithtown; Catholic Charities in Commack; Kenneth Peters Center for Recovery in Hauppauge; and the Huntington Youth Bureau. The Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services currently requires all certified providers to have on-site staff trained in the administration of naloxone. Tracey Farrell, founder of North Shore Drug Awareness, who lost her son Kevin to a heroin overdose, believes the local law is a good step toward helping the addiction crisis and loss of lives. She said she’s found that more often than not, especially with providers who are dispensing Suboxone, a controlled substance at high risk for dependence that treats pain and addiction to pain relievers,individuals are obtaining prescriptions with the intent of selling. “I personally feel that this life-saving medication needs to be in the hands of everyone who may be in contact with someone with a substance use disorder,” Farrell said. “Anyone dealing with this population should have Narcan on them at all times. Kudos to Suffolk County for making sure it’s in more hands.”

Huntington spoils West’s homecoming festivities By Bill landon After what was argued to be a questionable call, Smithtown West’s football team couldn’t catch Huntington, falling 28-23 in the Bulls’ homecoming game Oct. 7. On Huntington’s last possession of the third quarter, the offensive line stood on the line of scrimmage to start play, but decided instead to let the clock expire. What went unnoticed at field level was Huntington’s center bending over and touching the ball before he decided to stand up and let time tick off the clock.

Huntington 28 Smithtown W. 23

Up in the press box, an assistant coach radioed head coach Steve Fasciani, who told player David Gonzales to pick up the ball and run with it. The wide receiver took off for the end zone, and officials blew the whistle at the 30-yard line, but Fasciani argued it was a live ball. After a 25-minute conference which including sourcing the rule book, the ruling on the field stood that there was no touchdown. In the fourth quarter, Smithtown West quarterback Kyle Zawadzki found wide receiver Chris Crespo open over the middle, who turned it up field for the touchdown with just over three minutes left to play. Kicker Matthew Villano scored on the extra-point kick attempt to pull Smithtown West within five, but Huntington took over and let the clock unwind. “They play power football and they’re very good at it, but our second half — with how our defense played — was a huge step for us,” Fasciani said. “I have no problem with how our guys played in the second half today, all heart. They played tough and they took the next step in my opinion.” Running back Eric Sands led the way for the Blue Devils, and after a long run down to the 2-yard line, he sealed the deal by punching into the end zone two plays later. Senior Nat Amato split the uprights for a 7-0 lead. The Bulls struggled with their running game, and went three-and-out on their first three possessions against a formidable Huntington defensive unit. Utilizing the hurry-up offense, Huntington connected on three consecutive pass plays to move the chains to the 15-yard line. Sands once again made his way into the end zone, racing down the right sideline and breaking a tackle before sauntering into touchdown land. After a low snap, holder Luke Eidle was

able to gather it up and Amato struck again to put his team out front 14-0 with just over two minutes left in the opening quarter. Smithtown West made progress up the field, but the Blue Devils defense forced a turnover, and Sands got the call once more as the junior raced 19 yards for the touchdown. Amato, perfect on the day, gave Huntington a 21-0 advantage with just under 10 minutes left until halftime. “[Sands] was a monster in the beginning of the game,” Huntington head coach Steve Muller said. “We thought they were identical to us with their offense — they’ve got a lot of talented skill players — but we knew coming in we were going to have to stop [Zawadzki].” But the coach said he knew his team couldn’t stop him. “He’s very, very good, an outstanding athlete,” Muller said. “Since you can’t stop him, you have to bend him a little bit.” Zawadzki made that hard to do when he dropped back to pass to Crespo, crossing over the middle, who made the 36-yard touchdown catch. Crespo struck again on a handoff, punching it in for the two-point conversion to trail 21-8 with less than seven minutes left in the second. Huntington responded when quarterback John Paci hit a hole, broke outside and raced 51 yards down the right sideline before he was forced out at the 14-yard line. Sands finished the play by breaking free of two wouldbe tacklers and finding the end zone for his fourth touchdown of the game. Sands said he couldn’t take all the credit for the scores. “My line, they’re excellent,” he said. “They’re my leaders and I can’t say enough about them. They played great; I can’t do it without those guys.” Smithtown West fumbled the ball four

minutes into the third, and Smithtown West running back and linebacker Matthew Caddigan recovered it. Zawadzki scored on a keeper, taking the ball 5 yards for the only third-quarter score. “I thought we played a sloppy second half,” Sands said. “But [Smithtown West is] a competitive team.” The Bulls drop to 2-3 in the Suffolk County Division II standings while the Blue Devils improve to 3-2. Huntington hopes to spoil another homecoming when the Blue Devils travel to Newfield Oct. 14 at 2 p.m. Smithtown West will face off against crosstown rival Smithtown East the same date and time.

Smithtown’s scoreless 4th quarter leads to homecoming loss By Jim Ferchland Going into the fourth quarter up 14-13, the Smithtown East football team could not contain Bay Shore’s defensive prowess. The Marauders scored 20 unanswered points off turnovers during a 12-minute span to pick up a 33-14 win on the road at the Bulls’ homecoming game Oct. 7. Smithtown East quarterback Kevin Melore threw three interceptions with two of them landing in the hands of Bay Shore’s Josh Barker-

Ortiz, who made his fifth and sixth interceptions of the season. He also had a fumble recovery. The Bay Shore defensive back is tied for first with Walt Whitman’s Jordan Lyons among Suffolk County’s interception leaders. Smithtown East ended the game turning the ball over four times. Despite this, Smithtown East head coach Jonathan Woods was not disappointed by his quarterback’s performance. “Kevin [Melore’s] got talent and he’s getting the chance to get a lot of experience,” Woods said of the sophomore. “He threw a couple of great balls on screens, but I think as an offense you can’t turn the ball over four times. We had a couple [turnovers] through the air and a couple on the ground but as an offense we just need to protect the ball.” The first score of the game didn’t come until the second quarter, where the Bulls started just outside their own end zone. Melore’s pass was intercepted by Barker-Ortiz, who returned it back for a 10-yard touchdown. The extra point was missed, making the score 6-0 Marauders. East retaliated on its next possession, when senior running back Lauden Hendricks found an opening on the left side and took the ball in for a 20-yard score. The extra point was good and East went into halftime leading 7-6. To start the third quarter, Bay Shore quarterback Casey Roan threw the ball to his 6-foot, 5-inch wide receiver Kevin Sammis for a 51yard touchdown to give Bay Shore a 13-7 lead. “Every week I really have a cornerback who’s not my size,” he said. “I think we should

throw it all the time, but when we do throw it, I just do my best to get the ball.” Woods though did not see Sammis as a difference maker. “He is a good player,” Woods said. “We thought if we played good team defense that [Sammis] might catch a few deep balls. I don’t think he beat us when we had four turnovers. We had poor execution on offense.” In the closing minutes of the third, East relied heavily on its running attack, and senior quarterback Austin Nasworthy punched it in the end zone from 4 yards out to put East back on top 14-13. Even with the momentum on their side, the Bulls were held scoreless in the fourth. Bay Shore’s comeback started with the Bulls’ defense allowing a 30-yard rushing score to Nolan Epps on a sweep to the right side. Bay Shore went for a two-point conversion, but was unsuccessful, so the score was brought to 19-14 with the Marauders now holding the advantage. With 6:29 remaining in the game, Melore was looking for senior wide receiver Andrew Durland, but found Bay Shore defensive back Jalen Thompson instead. He made a diving catch and set up Casey Roan, who completed the drive with his legs, scoring a 3-yard rushing touchdown to expand the lead to 12 with 2:12 left. Barker-Ortiz continued to excite at the expense of East’s homecoming celebration, and with 1:48 remaining in the game he

On the next play, Josh Parris took it in for a 7-yard rushing touchdown to give the game its final score. The Bulls fall to 1-4 on the season and suffer their fourth consecutive loss after winning the first game of the season against Copaigue Sep 9. “We are not meeting our capabilities, so there’s some frustration there,” Woods said. Smithtown East’s next game is Oct.14 at home against crosstown rival Smithtown West at 2 p.m.

New trial program pairs inmates with shelter dogs By Kevin Redding kevin@tbrnewspapers.com In a new program at Yaphank Correctional Facility, Suffolk County inmates and homeless dogs are helping each other get a second chance. Six men in orange jumpsuits lined up on the grounds of the jail Oct. 4, each with a shelter dog at their side, and took turns walking their four-legged companions around in a large circle, demonstrating the dog’s new

socialization skills. With a quick command, the dogs either sat, stayed or laid down. One of the dogs, named Bain, an 11-month-old Rottweiler, even showed off how he can help someone get back on their feet — literally. The demonstration was all part of a presentation of Handcuffs to Heeling, a pilot program that teaches low-risk, nonviolent offenders to train abandoned dogs — Rottweilers, pit bulls and German Shepherds plucked from the Brookhaven Town animal shelter. The aim of the program, which started in mid-September, is to socialize the dogs well

enough so they can be put up for adoption. But it’s also doing plenty of good for their trainers too. The inmates train the dogs three nights a week for two hours each session. “We’re rehabilitating humans through animals,” said Michael Gould, the president and founder of Hounds Town Charities, who pitched the idea of the dog training program to Suffolk County Sheriff Vincent DeMarco in the spring. “When I see inmates, I see humans. When I see these big, powerful dogs, I see animals that shouldn’t be in a shelter.” Gould, a former commanding officer of the Nassau County Police K-9 unit, admitted these breeds of dogs are difficult to adopt out because they carry reputations of being dangerous. But they are caring, loving and now welltrained, thanks to the inmates, Gould added. “These are among the best dogs you can come across,” he said. With a quick snap of his fingers, the dog at Gould’s side stopped and sat at attention. “Everything is low key. There’s no crazy energy. It’s all about structure and love. Firm hand. Kind heart.” Suffolk County undersheriff Steven Kuehhas said he believes the program will reduce recidivism among the inmates, all of whom are serving a local sentence. “This program gives the inmates the opportunity to learn responsibility,” Kuehhas said. He also added the program may help the inmates’ chances of employment, in an animal shelter or as a dog handler, after they leave. He called the program a win-win situation.

Jackie Bondanza, a Hounds Town representative and one of the program’s coordinators, said she’s noticed significant changes among the inmates and dogs since the program started. “It’s been a very inspiring transformation,” she said. “When the inmates first came, they were all composed and didn’t want to be here. They’ve since really opened up and I think it’s helped build their confidence. Same with the dogs. ” The inmates turned dog trainers were chosen by the sheriff’s department under the criteria of being nonviolent offenders and being physically capable of handling their canine. One of the inmates — Joseph Dima, 36, from Bohemia — said he was thinking of his own dog back home when he signed up for the program. “To help these dogs find a home and owners that will handle them well — that was a big thing for me,” Dima said, referring to the pit bull he was assigned to, Carl, as a loving mush. “He’s such a great dog. People get the wrong misconceptions about pit bulls. He just wants affection. All the dogs do.” During the course of the program, the dogs live at Hounds Town Charities, which is housed in Ronkonkoma. Plans are in place to continue Handcuffs to Heeling after the expiration of the current six-week program as those behind it seek corporate sponsors and residents interested in adopting the dogs.

LAP gives their all to running Grateful Paw Stock photo

Taking the wrong route We’re not accepting pro-football player Cam Newton’s apology, but we’re not accepting reporter Jourdan Rodrigue’s either. With an editorial staff that houses a female sports editor and reporter, the NFL quarterback’s comments to Rodrigue, a Carolina Panthers beat writer for the Charlotte Observer, hit close to home. In a post-game interview following the Panthers’ 27-24 win over the Detroit Lions Oct. 8, Rodrigue asked Newton about his relationship with a receiver. “Devin Funchess has really seemed to embrace the physicality of his routes and getting those extra yards,” she said. “Does that give you a little bit of enjoyment to see him kind of truck sticking people out there?” [For those who may not know football terminology, routes are plays, like directional paths, and truck sticking is the process of running through tacklers.] As soon as the word “routes” came out of the reporter’s mouth, Newton sported a beaming grin. “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes,” he said in response. “It’s funny.” What’s even more disheartening is that after the comment was made, Rodrigue followed Newton to talk to him about his remarks, and he did not apologize. What is the importance of having females in a male-dominated industry? To focus on football numbers, women account for 45 percent of fans, NFL vice president of marketing Johanna Faries said at the second NFL Women’s Summit earlier this year. A league that a few years ago was completely comprised of men now has two female coaches, two female officials, three female 100 percent owners and a female chief security officer. A small number to be sure, but at least it’s an improvement from the old days. But after Newton’s comment, we fear we’re taking a step backward, or maybe the perceived progress is just that: perceived. Newton’s remarks are inappropriate, degrading and disrespectful, and it’s sad to see and hear that this mentality still exists. Newton tried to play it off like he was joking, or didn’t mean it solely about women, but his response was so specific. Contrary to his implication, you don’t need to be a man or play the sport to have extensive knowledge of it. There are female sports reporters that know more about sports than their male counterparts because many have to go above and beyond to level the playing field. Newton is viewed as a leader on the football field, but his comments off it prove the contrary. However, after some media outlets did some digging, it turns out Rodrigue should not be considered the utmost authority on social consciousness either. Several racist tweets dating back four and five years ago were found on the reporter’s Twitter account. She references her father “being super racist as we pass through Navajo land …” and replied to someone’s comment saying, “He’s the best. Racist jokes the whole drive home.” She even used a racist epithet; although she did post an apology on Twitter. If we don’t want to be disrespected, we need to work on our politics. We all need to be better.

I am writing this letter on behalf of the Huntington League for Animal Protection/Grateful Paw Cat Shelter. This organization is strictly run by a group of volunteers and supported by donations and fundraisers. These volunteers work at the shelter, taking care of many homeless, injured, sick, aging cats and many kittens. That’s not to say that there aren’t also very healthy, adoptable cats there as well. This shelter has a staff veterinarian, who cares for all of these cats, visiting once a week throughout the entire year. He is paid for by Grateful Paw not the Town of Huntington. These volunteers are on call 24/7, 365 days a year taking

emergency calls and rescuing injured cats, while feeding, cleaning and medicating those in need on a daily basis. They give of their time, effort and energies for the sake and well-being of the cats. Although I am not a resident of Huntington, I have fostered some kittens and have worked with a volunteer trapping feral cats to be neutered, rehabilitated and released back into a feral colony that was supervised by a caring adult. I have seen firsthand just how much work these volunteers have done. They are amazing people doing an amazing job. Yet, the Town of Huntington is proceeding to close the doors of this wonderful shelter by Nov. 30, leaving these “once homeless”

animals homeless again. There doesn’t seem to be a reasonable reason why this is happening. I highly suspect that the residents of Huntington do not know that this is taking place nor do they realize that there will be no place for the residents to bring unwanted, sick and homeless cats. I sincerely urge the residents of Huntington to ask questions of their town board members and find answers as to why the town board of Huntington finds it necessary to close this wonderful shelter that has been doing a great service for their community for more than 40 years.

Racist messages invisible to everyone else I am absolutely amazed at the uncanny, almost savantlike, ability of some people to find secret racist messages in instances perfectly obvious to themselves, but which are invisible to the rest of us. A fine example of this phenomenon occurred recently, when the First lady of the United States, the lovely and gracious Melania Trump, thoughtfully donated collections of children’s books written by Dr. Seuss to school libraries in each of the 50 states. Surely no one could possibly have a problem with this. After all, Dr. Seuss books have sold over 600 million copies, in 20 languages and are universally loved by everyone. But, wait … a school librarian from Cambridge, Massachusetts, Liz Phipps Soeiro, announced that she had rejected the books, saying that they were full of “racist propaganda, caricatures and harmful stereotypes” and “racist mockery.” How can this be? The Cat in the Hat is a racist? Yes, it is claimed, because the Cat in the Hat wears a bow tie, and bow ties were worn by performers

in black minstrel shows in the 1850s, thereby proving that the country’s favorite feline is in fact a closet racist. Who would have known? Even the previous first lady, Michelle Obama, never known as a person likely to overlook a potential act of racism, took great delight in reading Dr. Seuss books to school children.

And so we must ask the question: Is it conceivable that Ms. Soeiro’s announcement might be at least slightly disingenuous, and might be motivated by something other than, or possibly in addition to, her stated desire to stamp out racism? As a small fly in her ointment, a picture turned up, showing a smiling Ms. Soeiro in her classroom, holding a copy of “Green Eggs and Ham” and wearing a Cat in the Hat costume. Might it be that Ms. Soeiro saw the first lady’s thoughtful gift as an opportunity to launch an attack on the president, providing yet another example of his innate racism and probable membership in the KKK? The other example, in case anyone missed it, was his expressed opinion that Mickey Mantle was a better center fielder than Willie Mays, which was strike one. Now Mrs. Trump and Dr. Seuss have provided strike two. And, as we all know, three strikes and you’re out. Are you ready, Maxine Waters?

OpiniOn Addressing the harassment problem

W

hat people don’t say can speak volumes. Take the Harvey Weinstein allegations. Numerous women have come forward and described abhorrent behavior toward women by someone in power. That’s not a new phenomenon, but what’s new is the identity of the perpetrator and the time period involved — decades, it appears. When asked about the allegations, President Donald Trump said he was “not at all surprised to see it.” Hmm, not at By Daniel Dunaief all surprised? Didn’t the person whose every word and tweet gets splashed across headlines around the world have anything else to say, like, “If the allegations are true, it’s horrible and we should address this problem as a nation.” Or, “We as a country need to address this serious problem.”

D. None of the above

No, he didn’t. In a follow-up question, a reporter asked if Weinstein’s behavior was inappropriate, and Trump responded that the movie executive said it was. Again, not much there. I recognize this wasn’t a women’s rights forum and that he didn’t have prepared remarks or a flowing speech to cite, but he had an opportunity to address a real problem and he seemed more prepared to suggest he knew that Weinstein’s superstar public character had some tarnish. The New York public transport system has run ads for years imploring, “If you see something, say something.” That’s not always easy, especially when no one else might have been around to hear or see inappropriate comments or gestures. This isn’t about political correctness: It’s about allowing people to do their best work without feeling threatened or uncomfortable. Locker room talk, or anything else that resembles a putdown for whatever reason, creates a hostile work environment. Almost exactly a year ago, candidate Trump described several women who accused the Clintons of improper

behavior towards women as “courageous” at a press conference before a debate with Hillary Clinton. While Trump hasn’t shared any such words of support for Weinstein’s victims, others have applauded them for coming forward. If Weinstein’s alleged victims had done so initially, taking on the equivalent of a movie icon could have put their careers at risk. Gender politics are often a challenging and sore point at work. People can often dismiss inappropriate comments as being jokes or suggesting that their words weren’t what they intended. Some jobs, like Wall Street trading, or, well, locker rooms, often involve a type of bawdy humor that is part of the culture. But why should anyone have to tolerate it? With training and a heightened public awareness, the excuse “Well, that’s just the way it is” could turn into, “That’s not the way we do things around here.” Pundits are suggesting that if eight women have come forward to accuse Weinstein, there are likely many more. Then again, if he could and did engage in inappropriate conduct for

decades, you have to imagine there are other men who did it, too. Weinstein, in his own words, needs help. So, too, does the rest of society. He suggested he came from a different era. Others have taken him to task, indicating that somewhere along the line, he missed some major strides society made between whatever time period he imagined and today. Who else is living in that era and how can we help them? Maybe, in addition to training the next set of up-and-coming managers, we should make sure the top executives — most of whom are men — understand what’s OK and what crosses a real line that is not only objectionable, but is also problematic for them and their careers. We watch movies for many reasons: We want to be inspired, we want to understand other people and, sometimes, we want a perspective that helps us understand ourselves better. Maybe the inappropriate actions of a moviemaker can shed some more light on a problem that clearly isn’t unique to one person. A corollary to the transport ad, perhaps, should be, “If you hear something, say something.”

The opposite sexes need each other

I

f a man and a woman are seen together having lunch, the inevitable gossip ensues. The two of them may be colleagues or they may simply be friends. But rumors start. Does this always happen? Not always, of course, but often enough to discourage pairing off for an exchange of ideas or career advice perhaps in business. Now, with sexual harassment the news, By Leah S. Dunaief in there is added pressure for the sexes to go their separate ways lest any movement or words be misunderstood between them. What nonsense. Please be assured that I am as passionately against sexual harassment as anyone on the planet. Wherever it may be found, it should be exposed and

halted. But the pendulum, I believe, may be swinging too far in the other direction. Recently Vice President Mike Pence mentioned that he doesn’t eat alone with a woman who is not his wife. Recent polls indicate that a majority of employees of both sexes feel it is inappropriate to have a drink or dinner together and, although less so, it may also be inappropriate for lunch. Even driving together in a car can be looked at askance. This wariness, although perhaps helpful in avoiding situations of sexual harassment, is a loser for both sexes, especially in the workplace. For men, who are apparently unsure where the boundaries are for a touch on the arm or an innocent compliment on a colleague’s dress, there is the loss of diversity. Women can have different sensibilities and can offer different perspectives than men, to the benefit of both. A recent advertisement featuring a woman has just been yanked by a major company because it may be misinterpreted as racist. My guess is that no woman executive of that company

saw the ad before it went public. For women, the loss is perhaps greater. Since most of the leadership of companies and institutions is still made up of men, the mentorship and sponsorship of female employees is at least as vital, or even more so, than for male junior-level employees. But if a woman cannot enjoy a close professional working relationship with such a sponsor, she is often blocked from moving up in the ranks. I am reminded of my own business life and the people who helped me advance. Yes, there were a couple of women mentors who were willing to share their skills with me and promote my status, but there were more men along the way who selected me for advancement. One local businessman volunteered important advice to me at a critical time in the early years of the newspaper. Another energetically proposed me as a candidate for president of the New York Press Association, a position for which I will always be grateful. Another supported my intuition at a decisive juncture, I’m sure I don’t know why, but it worked out well.

Several others helped me with various financial matters. Did I meet with them alone for lunch or dinner or, heavens, for a drink? You bet I did. How else to get private time for critical conversation? Meetings in the office are routinely interrupted or overheard. Did I ever meet alone with anyone of the opposite sex in his bedroom? You can put money on the answer being “no”! There are lines one doesn’t cross, no matter what generation one belongs to, and they really are not so difficult to decipher. Are work colleagues ever sexually attracted to each other? As long as there are men and women, there can be attraction between them. But so what? That’s the way the two sexes were put forth. Presumably we adults know all about that and can conduct ourselves accordingly. Or, to return to square one, we can avoid each other completely. We women have a great deal we can offer men and vice versa. It would be so foolish to limit our contacts to only half the population. And besides, it wouldn’t nearly be as much fun.
